Celebrate New Year’s Eve at Newcastle Foreshore!

Bring your family and your picnic blanket to enjoy the outdoor fun and festive atmosphere with DJ sets, local performers, roving entertainers, interactive creative zones, and amusement rides along the harbourside precinct as it comes alive with a range of activities spread along Market St Lawn and the Foreshore (along Wharf Rd) between Argyle St and Watt St.

Brought to you by the City of Newcastle, there will be family friendly, inclusive, and fun entertainment for all ages with live music, food vendors and indigenous art workshops. The evenings activities will be spread throughout the precinct, from Lynch’s Hub through to the station, with plenty of space to adhere to social distancing requirements.
